Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) and Concussion


You may have a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) – and possibly a concussion – if you have experienced any of the following:

  • Unexpected fall

  • Unexpectedly being struck by or against a foreign object

  • Motor vehicle related injury

  • Assault by another person or animal

  • Collision with another player, object, or the ground while playing sports

mTBI is the result of the forceful motion of the head or impact to the head causing a brief change in mental status (confusion, disorientation, or loss of memory) or loss of consciousness for less than 30 minutes.

A concussion is a type of mild traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. A concussion can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging brain cells.

Mild traumatic brain injuries and concussions are often overlooked – but can have very serious immediate and lasting impact to the individuals who experience them.

Common Symptoms of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) and Concussion


After experiencing a brain injury or concussion, your symptoms may be subtle and may not be present or noticed at the time of injury.  Symptoms may be delayed days or weeks before they appear.  A person with a brain injury often looks and moves normal despite not feeling or thinking normal. 

Some common symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury and concussion:

  • Fatigue

  • Headaches

  • Visual disturbances

  • Memory loss

  • Poor attention/concentration

  • Sleep disturbances

  • Dizziness/loss of balance

  • Irritability-emotional disturbances

  • Feelings of depression

  • Seizures

  • Nausea

  • Loss of smell

  • Sensitivity to light and sounds

  • Mood changes

  • Getting lost or confused

  • Slowness in thinking




BrainScope® One for Assessment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion


Statcare Urgent Care uses BrainScope® One to aid in the assessment and diagnosis of your traumatic brain injury and concussion.

What is BrainScope® One?

The BrainScope® One head injury assessment device uses state-of-the-art handheld technology and a proprietary disposable headset to help the clinician answer two key questions:


1. Is there a structural injury component (i.e., bleed, hematoma, contusion, etc) to your brain injury that would be visible on a CT scan or advanced neuroimaging device (i.e., MRI)?

2. Is there a functional component to your brain injury that is indicative of a concussion?


The device also offers rapid cognitive performance tests, as well as numerous commonly used concussion assessment tools. BrainScope One helps your provider determine next steps in the treatment of your brain injury/concussion.



How does BrainScope® One work?


BrainScope® One uses EEG (electroencephalograph) technology which records electrical activity generated by the brain. Using the EEG output, BrainScope® One machine learning and advanced algorithm methodologies to identify and evaluate physiological biomarkers of brain injury.


BrainScope® One gives your provider easy-to-use assessment results which helps your provider determine the next steps in treatment of your mild traumatic brain injury or concussion.





How long does a BrainScope® One test take?


The BrainScope® One assessment can take ~20-30 minutes.  The test time is dependent on the operator (who performs the test on you) and the components of the test that are utilized (EEG, neurocognitive, other concussion assessment tools).



What are the benefits of BrainScope® One?


BrainScope® One is FDA-cleared and enables fast, objective assessment of mild traumatic brain injury and concussion at the point of care. Additionally, BrainScope® One is patient-friendly, non-invasive and does not require the patient to be exposed to radiation. BrainScope® One is convenient for the patient and reduces wait time and expenses that the patient would incur with an ER visit.
